What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right college for you is a combination of finances, living environment, and the school's locations. Whichever school choice best fits these criteria will allow you to find everything else a student is looking for in college. It is easier to find people with whom you share things in common when going into an environment that you feel most at home. With these friends by your side, any student can discover all the areas of college that lead to a succesful college career both academically and socially.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Balancing a schedule of school, school-related activities, and a social life.

Take a tour of the campus and ask students about their experiences.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

It's important to get involved right from the start. It's a small school, but it is still sometimes difficult to make friends your first semester if you don't get involved. Once in your major, you will definetely get to know your fellow classmates, but in the first year especially, it is difficult to meet new people unless you have something tying you together. I chose to join a sorority and that has made all the difference to my college experience, and since there are only four sororities here, we are all very close as a greek community.

I believe any college is the RIGHT choice. You just have to make THAT college your OWN experience.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

That the parents should let their children live on campus and actually let them have their freedom. And to choose the right college is to just go and look, make a pros and cons list about the universities that you are choosing from. And go with your gut.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about this school is that it's small enough where you can interact and meet people, but big enough to where you don't know everybody.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Like the show Cheers. Everyone knows your name and if they dont they will and want too. At UTC you get the best of both worlds. a good price becasue its public, but also the consern from professors and the warmth from students because were a smaller public school. perfect size.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Pick a college that feels right to you. go and visit as many as you can. stop a student on a campus you visit and ask him/her some questions. see if you can talk to professors or administrators. do as much homework as you can about the institution and make sure they put as much into campus/ social life as they do academnics, because college is a life learning experience not just an academic one. parents- let your child be the one to make the decision, he/she is the one going. students- keep in mind your parents are paying, and they just want the best for you. above all learn from your professors and learn from the students around you, both of them will help you succeed in life.

What's unique about your campus?

campus life. we all know that the purpous of coming to college is to learn a skill or profession to get a job. but there is also so much to do on campus, concerts, mixers, "coffee house" discussions, formal, guset speakers, field activities, outdoor recreation, and so much more that I cant think of right now.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very intellectual and some of them do not mind helping others if they have problems understanding.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For the students, don't let your parents influence your entire decision as to where you want to go. Also, don't let money be a problem when it comes to selecting the college that you want to go to because there will always be money available. To the parents, I would have to emphasis that it is NOT you going to college--this is not your second chance. If your child picks a college that either you don't like or you don't quite approve, just be helpful because, remember, this is a big time and telling your child what to do will only make this more difficult.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The other schools I considered were art colleges without a focus in other fields or course or did not have many general courses offered. UTC allows me to study other subjects aside from art related courses.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is very important to view the college -and if there is an overnight visit one should take it. It's better to invest time in researching a college you decided not to go to than no time in a college you do go to. Looking students on visits should try not to only talk to students giving the tours -they often only have great things to say about the school- but also the students hanging around the campus to get a real unedited scoop. Students should consider the fact that college is not going to be like high schools and their friends might not be there, so therefore some might want to consider the types of people they will be intereacting with to ensure a comforable fit and the ability to make friends. You don't want to feel out of place and lonely if you are unable to relate to or scared to talk to different people.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known more about the city and the relation the college has to places. I often have to find places off of campus for supplies, which has been a hassle. I also wish I had known about the food choices .
